Water Lane Para 79

This 16 acre plot in the High Weald AONB is being transformed through the extension of an ancient woodland gill habitat, re-linking the historic woodland area, whilst providing a robust enhanced natural landscape within.

The Para 79 building explores the character of old Kent peg tiled roofscapes and enjoys stunning views across contained meadow glades beyond.

One thing we love about aged tile roofs, is that their geometry and patina softens over time in response to weather and the structure that lies beneath. Here we are exploring these organic flowing curves, developing an architectural language that expresses the tiled roof as a draping cloak over the building that lies beneath.
